Starting from the central Piazza de Ferrari, runners find themselves running through a quaint neighbourhood with beautiful views of the entire city until they find themselves in by the central seaside.
You will run via the long promenade from an area called ‘La foce’ to the amazing small old village called Boccadasse. Many years ago it was only a village famous for its fishing port and now it’s an area full of bars/restaurant where you can spend time on the beach, take an aperitif in one of the several bars or have a romantic dinner. Here you can feel a magical atmosphere, even though we are still only 5 km from Genoa Centre.
On the way back we run through the elegant neighbourhood Albaro : a big hill full of beautiful houses, green area and some typical narrow streets close to the sea. In the past here there were a lot of properties belonging to the aristocratic people living in the center. It was the country side of the city becoming now the most exclusive part of Genoa for living.
This running tour is perfect for the runners who would like to run along the scenic seaside and experience the local gem of Boccadasse.
